With Democrats and their media allies doing verbal backflips to run interference for Joe Biden amid serious sexual assault allegations, President Donald Trump zeroed in on MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace Saturday, called her a “3rd rate lapdog” who was “thrown off The View like a dog.”
Naturally, the same cabal that is minimizing former Biden staffer Tara Reade’s claim is trying to spin Trump’s use of the term “dog” to imply sexism.
Responding to a tweet from conservative Mark Levin, who draws attention to a story of Wallace dismissing Reade’s claim as a right-wing “smear campaign,” the president tweeted: “She was thrown off The View like a dog, Zero T.V. Personas. Now Wallace is a 3rd rate lapdog for Fake News MSDNC (Concast). Doesn’t have what it takes!”

In a segment Friday commenting on the 2020 presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s interview on “Morning Joe,” where he adamantly denied the allegation, but was also adamant about not opening records held by the University of Delaware to see if there is a copy of the complaint Reade has said she filed, Wallace went after the right as a diversion.
“Let me just say this to you having once been a part of the Republican Party,” she said. “The right isn’t running an intellectually honest operation to get to the bottom of whether Tara Reade was victimized. The right is running a smear campaign against Joe Biden.”
As might be expected, the MSNBC anchor then pivoted to Trump.
“The right wants to create some sort of equal playing field on which Donald Trump’s more than two dozen, or nearly two dozen accusers sort of have some company on the other side,” she added.
She also took care to defend Democrats for the double standard at play, where they stand with Biden amid sexual assault accusations that have been corroborated, while throwing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh under the bus over far more vague accusations.
“The right is not running the same operation that the Democrats are running which is to try to have some consistency around statements that I think just about every elected Democrat has made about women in the context of the #MeToo movement,” Wallace concluded.
In 2016, when accusations were flying about President Trump’s alleged inappropriate behavior, Wallace oddly struck a different tone, as seen here:

Wallace served as White House communications director under George W. Bush, and was a senior adviser to Sarah Palin during Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign — there’s a widely held view that Wallace fed the former Alaskan governor to the media wolves.
And while she said in Nov. 2019 she’s still registered as a Republican, Wallace referred to the GOP as “my old party” in an interview with Stephen Colbert.
In effect, Wallace, who reportedly left her husband of 14 years for New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt that same year, is too lazy to change her party registration.
“I’m still a registered Republican because I can barely renew my driver’s license let alone go down and re-register, but I’m not a practicing Republican,” she told Colbert.
